Wireless Requirements

Wireless Requirements

Laptop, Tablet and Mobile Phones

You will need a laptop, a smartphone or other wireless device such as an iPad with wireless capabilities to access the wireless network.  You will need your SU Account (username & password) or wireless guest account.

Gaming Consoles, Smart TV’s and other streaming devices

Devices such as gaming consoles, TV’s and other streaming devices can access the wireless network, with a browser using your SU username and password.  To ensure a solid connection, use a wired connection with an Ethernet cable. (Every residential room comes with a wired Ethernet connection per student)

Devices that cannot accept a username and password such as AppleTV, Chromecast and Roku devices must be manually registered to use the wireless network. To register your device, click Device Registration here.

Personal Wireless Routers and Printers

The following devices are not allowed or supported

-      Personal Wireless Routers or hotspots are prohibited
-      Wireless Printers

Both types of devices broadcast their own wireless networks, hindering your computer's ability to communicate with the University’s wireless network.  The interference from these devices is the most common source of intermittent and unreliable wireless connections in the residential areas. 


If you are having difficulty connecting to the wireless network review the instructions and if you need further help contact the Division of Information Technology Help Desk at 225-771-4357.
